Mo’ne Davis was at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. The 13-year-old Little League star was introduced by Queen Latifah as “an amazing young woman all the way from Philadelphia.”
Mo’ne Davis hung out with the Los Angeles crowd Tuesday — and she ended up signing the autographs.
But that was just one part of her starry evening. Davis reportedly challenged Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to a pitch-off, declaring, “I throw my curveball like Clayton Kershaw and my fastball like Mo’ne Davis.”
As the video [below] shows, Queen Latifah later introduced Davis to fans while highlights of the young athlete striking out the boys played on the screen. Then Davis threw the ceremonial first pitch for a strike. After the game, she got to hang out with Kershaw in the locker room.
Davis became the first girl to win a game as a pitcher in the Little League World Series last month. Davis led her team to the semifinal of the Little League World Series and most recently posed on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
